Dr Oz: Chi vs Jing
Dr. Oz talked with Lillian Pearl Baker and Dr. David A. Friedman about the Chinese medicine practice of face mapping. They explained what your face reveals about your health, including ways to tell if a woman is pregnant just by looking at her nose!
Dr Oz: Earlobe Crease Sign Of Heart Disease
Lillian Pearl Baker is a face reading expert and she said there are strong clues in our face that reveal the health of our internal organs, like a crease in a person’s earlobe. Have you ever looked closely at your earlobe? Lillian said if you have that crease it is pretty common, but it could also be a sign of variable blood pressure and a warning that you could be developing heart disease. Dr. David A. Friedman, who is a cardiologist, also uses Chinese medicine in his practice and he agrees with Lillian. He explained that if he sees that crease in the ear or a patient expresses to him that it is something they have never noticed before, he does get concerned because of its association with heart disease.
Dr Oz: Fatty Eyelids Sign Of Cholesterol Buildup
Have you ever looked closely at your eyelids? Do they look pretty normal? Well Lillian Pearl Baker said if you ever look at your eyelids and see fatty areas then this is a sign of floating cholesterol in your body, which is a big warning sign. She explained that this means your liver and gall bladder are not processing the cholesterol properly and sending it to the brain where it needs to be, but instead it is floating around in your body and could end up as plaque in your arteries. Dr. Oz added that this is definitely something he agrees with because it is truly a sign that cholesterol is built up in your body, which could cause problems for your heart.
Dr Oz: What Is Jing?
While dark circles under the eyes are pretty common and often signify a lack of sleep or hydration, Lillian Pearl Baker explained that sunken eye sockets are something more to be concerned about because they are a sign that something is wrong with your kidney function. Lillian added that kidneys are really important to your longevity, especially in Chinese medicine, so you need to take care of them. She explained that Jing is at the core of your kidney health, even noting that Jing is more important than Chi, because Jing is the energy you carry around in your body. If you are not staying well hydrated and taking care of yourself then your kidneys will suffer and you will begin to feel depleted of your Jing, which is essential to living a long and healthy life.
Dr Oz: Face Mapping Results
Dr. Oz decided to put Lillian Pearl Baker to the test, so he invited two audience members to the stage to experience face mapping firsthand. Both revealed their health issues to Dr. Oz’s staff before the show, but neither had ever met Lillian before. She was actually able to perfectly figure out what was in their medical file just by looking at the clues in each of their faces.
